SANTA MONICA, Calif., March 21, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Encore Brands has begun brokered shipping and sales of the premium over proof tequila Agave 99 in California following the addition of its first class outside sales team in the state.  

Bottled at 99 proof and available in Blanco, Reposado and Anejo, this outstanding tequila practically eliminates the watered down taste common to mixed tequila drinks like Margueritas or Sunrises either blended or on the rocks.

Made from 100% agave and distilled to the highest quality before aging in oak barrels, this over proof tequila has the smoothness and rich flavor of super premium tequilas containing 20% less alcohol by volume.

Working with importers Worldwide Beverage Imports LLC, Encore and its sales associates will market and sell Agave 99 in select states where it has a presence. This unique brand fills a niche unfilled by premium tequilas commonly used where mixed tequila drinks are a staple.

"Together with our initial sales of Ecstasy Liqueur in California, this marks another important step for us. We thank World Wide Imports for allowing us to help bring Agave 99 to discerning tequila aficionados in the state," said Encore CEO Gareth West. "While tequila is an extremely crowded segment, after tasting Agave 99 against several competitive brands we were blown away. At 99 proof we believe this brand fits within our criteria of uniqueness and allows us to offer accounts something they are unable to find anywhere else."
